they disabled punctuation because of the "possibility of creating lewd images with special characters"
basically, they don't want people doing things like making richard's mighty pee pee 8====D
Something tells me you are the reason they got rid of "special character"

one reason why not to allow apostrophes.......what if i would name my city `````````` and i name all my cities like that.

Back to the topic; the creation of "lewd" images can be reported just as easily as racist, homophobic and profane language. It doesn't warrant an utter omission, surely.

You can sing? :p

But I agree - rules are rules. Disallowing a feature for the fear of someone violating a rule is putting restriction before action. It doesn't make much sense. By that logic we should ban the use of letters in order to avoid racism, profanity, etc. - but that won't happen. I feel the benefit far outweighs the pathetically small and inferior 'threat'.

I say yes! But no other special characters and not at the beginning of a word - so alphabetizing is still straightforward.

Some special characters are allowed, like * , so I don't see why the apostrophe is such an issue. The problem has been there right from day 1 so it's obviously something they just can't be arsed to fix.

It's also untrue. Figtree just has the amazingly bad luck of never having one of his ideas reach past the "supported" phase.
That being said, I like this idea very much, so +1 from me.
